Russia has found a new buyer on the Su-57

Recently we Reportedas the United States, frightened by Turkey’s interest in the Su-57 and other Russian weapons, began to actively offer Ankara its own weapons. Now, it has become known about the interest shown by the Su-57 from Myanmar (Burma), a state in Southeast Asia, shaken for decades by civil wars and ethnic conflicts, bordering China, India, Laos and Thailand.

So, as MilitaryWatch reports, after Myanmar (the former colony of Great Britain) acquired (ordered) a batch of six Su-2018SM from Russia in 30, it could well order a batch of Su-57. After all, the purchased fighters are clearly not enough to update the fleet of their own air forces, the basis of which is 29 MiG-29 units of various modifications and 49 F-7 units - the Chinese analogue of the MiG-21.

It should be noted that Myanmar is an openly poor country (130th in GDP in the world). The country's annual defense budget ranges from $ 2,0 - $ 3,0 billion. Therefore, when Myanmar will be able to implement a program to modernize its air forces, it is not entirely clear. According to the program, the country should have heavy fighters in a decent amount so that Yangon (Rangoon) can look normal in the eyes of its neighbors.

We remind you that in March 2019, according to the Director of International Cooperation and Regional policy Rostec State Corporation, Viktor Kladov, Russia has an export version of the Su-57, but he did not give specifics. However, it is known for certain that Russia already has 10 flight prototypes and 3 prototypes for ground tests of the Su-57. In addition, in 2019, the Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the supply of 76 Su-57 units and 12 of them should appear in the Russian Air Force by the end of this year.

        It's strange ... In my opinion, Myanmar needs such aircraft exactly as much as, say, the Czech Republic's nuclear submarine ... That is, theoretically, of course, you can buy it for the prestige of the state and put it on some kind of reservoir, but real combat use in its main parameters is hardly possible. Myanmar has roughly the same situation with fifth-generation fighters ... With those with whom they can successfully fight them, they have enough for their eyes and 5 ++, and against the PRC or India, for example, a couple of these aircraft will still not help ...

    Nobody needs a Su-57. Already just who did not try to suck it in, while no one is being conducted.

    Not very good news. Maybe they will buy something ..... a couple, well, four, six maximum. The technique is serious, but for what?

    So that Yangon (Rangoon) could look normal in the eyes of neighbors.

    belay Here is, however, the concept of application.sad Well, okay, their own business. They bought it and let it play, polish, wash it, parade through the streets. lol What is the difference to us? In the end, the buyer in the market is not necessarily a friend and ally.
    And they will pay off, scratch the amount.
    That's just for the image of a fighter to start selling with such ... stop
    I imagine the situation: 2020, an air show, costs SU-57, a musician plays, around are girls in flying overalls, a neckline to the belly button, in general - an idyll. smile Buyers are suitable, say, Arab sheikhs. Look, ask the price bully ask:
    “Well, OOO is a very good aircraft, but is it in service?”
    And then the representative of "Sukhoi" proudly declares
    - Yes. yes in Russia and in Myanmar. fellow good
    Everything finish laughing the store can be closed. sad yes

    And what is this Burma going to pay for Russian supplies of Su-57 ?! Or, again, they want to free then, partially paying with palm oil ?! Let them eat it themselves, and the Russian Federation pay with money and in full! And they don’t want to pay, let them fly in a dream ...
